A slow start to the morning - hell, we all need a lie-in sometimes. Typed up the Goldenford (http://www.goldenford.co.uk) minutes from Tuesday's meeting, practised my readings for the three Goldenford and Guildford Writers (http://www.guildfordwriters.net) events we have coming up in October, and did another thousand words to "The Gifting". It's funny how painfully slow the process of writing is for this particular novel, but how much I'm learning from it. It's as if I'm pulling Simon into the world very very gradually, and the more I see of him, the more I realise he's me. It gives me a lot to think about, but feels real.
Visited Gladys in the afternoon - lively but vague today, I think. At home, I uploaded my two available novels and one poetry book onto the new Writewords (http://www.writewords.org.uk) bookshop site. This is going to be a brilliant idea - there are about 5 or 6 books there at the moment, including mine - and it's going to be so much simpler to have this sort of place where quality work is guaranteed. Of course!
Tonight, Lord H and I are off to the ballet in Woking - "The Three Musketeers". Hope it will be good, but I have to say the new Woking icecream is rubbish. They just don't offer Loseley any more - shame, we cry.
Today's nice things:
1. The writing
2. The new Writewords bookshop
3. The ballet.
